This practical, lab-based approach to nano- and microfluidics provides readers with a wealth of practical techniques, protocols, and experiments ready to be put into practice in both research and industrial settings. The practical approach is ideally suited to researchers and R&D staff in industry; additionally the interdisciplinary approach to the science of nano- and microfluidics enables readers from a range of different academic disciplines to broaden their understanding.
Dr Rapp fully engages with the multidisciplinary nature of the subject. Alongside traditional fluid/transport topics, there is a wealth of coverage of materials and manufacturing techniques, chemical modification/surface functionalization, biochemical analysis, and the biosensors involved.
As well as providing a clear and concise overview to get started into the multidisciplinary field of microfluidics and practical guidance on techniques, pitfalls and troubleshooting, this book supplies:
- A set of hands-on experiments and protocols that will help setting up lab experiments but which will also allow a quick start into practical work.
- A collection of microfluidic structures, with 3D-CAD and image data that can be used directly (files provided on a companion website).
- A practical guide to the successful design and implementation of nano- and microfluidic processes (e.g. biosensing) and equipment (e.g., biosensors, such as diabetes blood glucose sensors).
- Provides techniques, experiments, and protocols ready to be put to use in the lab, in an academic, or industry setting.
- A collection of 3D-CAD and image files is provided on a companion website.
Engineers and scientists involved in designing and making use of nano/microfluidics techniques and equipment. Disciplines include engineering, materials science, biosensing, biochemistry, and medicine. Relevant to academia / research and industry
